I'm just so grateful to feel better and for modern day medicine.I 'm so grateful that I am generally a healthy person. You take your health for granted until you feel like CRAP, and all you want is to feel yourself again.I had Tyler give me a blessing as well and I am so grateful to have the priesthood in my home.That's something I also tend to take for granted.I'm glad to be up and going. It took a few days to get the house in order. Husbands are great for taking care of the kids but the house turns to CRAP when mom is sick. Whats up with that?

Last Tuesday I was running around like a crazy person. I did the make up for the models for Nordstrom's fashion show early in the morning(anything before 8 is early!) And had New Beginnings for Young Women's later that night. I had to make desert for 72 people and alfredo sauce. So too say the least, I had a lot going on,on this particular day. I started to feel a little ache and tired by late afternoon, but just thought it was from the labors of my day. However,by the end of our activity I felt like complete CRAP,CRAP and more CRAP!(Love that word!) I woke up in the middle of the night(feeling like CRAP) and freezing cold, but burning up as well. My throat felt like I was swallowing glass and my whole body hurt.Fortunately for me,Ty stayed home and took over. I couldn't even get out of bed.I thought I had the ever dreaded flue.Thursday was pretty much the same thing,CRAP! By Friday I knew I needed to go see the Dr. First thing in the morning I made myself an appointment,drove myself to the Dr.(sometimes it stinks being an adult) and I got myself a bad case of Strep throat AND a double ear infection! That explains the "swallowing glass" feeling. Those of you who know me, know, I don't do well with shots or needles for that matter. But I got 2 doses(2 shots) of antibiotics in my bum! Well actually my thigh, but its all about the same thing anyway! And I of coarse fainted, like I normally do with shots.Its a mental thing, but I don't know what to do about it. Anyway, after a full day I started to feel so much better. I don't know how the pioneers did it.That's why so many died! I would have died too.
